Fall Blessings

Good morning, my friends!

I am here to bring you another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. This is a great sketch - very versatile!

Here is my card for today:

I have been so inspired by all the leaf images showing up (I just *loved* Jennifer Holmes' sketch card from last week) and our recent cooler temperatures. Fall is on the way, and I love it.. my favorite time of the year.

I used images from Blessed By You and Peace and Plenty to create my leafy background paper. These are fantastic sets to have - the images are just beautiful, not to mention the unique sentiments.

I paired my patterned paper with a plaid design from the Cosmo Cricket Matilda collection. The label was cut using my Slice. I inked the edges with Distress Ink for a little aging and smudging.

The sketch challenge will remain open until Thursday, 11:59 EST. You can link up your entry on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Top Mice will be announced along with the new sketch next Saturday! Be sure to visit the blog and check out what the other DT members and Mischief Makers have created for the sketch challenge!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
